To Boldly Go Where No Talk Show Has Ever Gone Before
My only complaint about Shatner's Raw Nerve is that it only lasts for a half hour. With commercial breaks built in -- it often feels like you are losing precious time that you want to spend watching Bill and his guests in the innovative "love seat." I have enjoyed every single episode that I have seen without exception, but what he pulled out of Gene Simmons was not only a touching interview, but something that taught me a lot about success.

This is a crown jewel in William Shatner's impressive portfolio and I hope it continues.
